We have eaten here numerous times and the food is always excellent. We love to go there. One of my favorites is the lamb shank with dill sauce. The shrimp cocktails are great and the fresh bread is wonderful. My wife loves the fish dishes.

My husband and I just finished dinner celebrating our twenty year anniversary. We started with the sauté garlic mushrooms,which were a little rubbery and way to much garlic. Next we ordered the corn chowder, this is something I really was looking forward to since it was 40 degrees outside. It was canned corn, chicken broth and some hebs that gave... More

Beware! Stay away from Creola's on holidays! A late lunch at Creola's was supposed to be the highlight of my 80 year-old Mom's Mothers Day weekend. 3 o'clock reservations, 100+ degrees outside. Were the first into the door at 2:53, waited while Creola, her back to us in the next room preparing multiple servings of Bananas Foster, refused to acknowledge... More

Food is fine, upscale atmosphere but caters primarily for the 50 and older crowd. Most of the choices on the menu are mid-western type, meat and potatoes, gravy, no real spicy or out of the ordinary fare. Not real generous with their portions. Felt like they expect older people who want generally blandish food and no leftovers.

This is a small restaurant serving the very best French dishes we have ever had. The service is excellent. The atmosphere is very pleasing. It is easy to have a conversation with friends without distracting noise,

We have been eating at this restaurant for 10 years, both just 2 people and sometimes group as large as 20. It is a fine dining experience for reasonable price.

Ok, so I get it that "fine dining" is not rushed. You should be relaxed and ready to enjoy the experience......but this was a little too much. It was 45 minutes from the time we were seated until the waitress even brought us the menu or a glass of water. 45 minutes to even begin the evening? After we finally... More
